Ready or Not: Kingdom Innovation for a Brave New World
By: Doug Paul
If the last year has taught us anything, it’s the truth of that statement, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” All of us have had to innovate in really unexpected ways. However, there was a desperate need for innovation before COVID hit and once we get on the other side of it, there will be even more need. So what does it look like to create a culture of innovation in your church and what are some of the essential practices? That’s where we’ll be focusing our time during this our together.
“Whether you’re ready or not, the most predictable thing about life today is that our culture will change at a rate that is hard to keep up with, no matter who you are,” writes Paul. Read more here.
“Prepare to be surprised and delighted, and ultimately, roused to action. Ready or Not is a primer for any Christian leader wanting to step into a future that takes innovation seriously.”

—Jeff Vanderstelt, author; lead teaching pastor, Doxa Church
“Doug has gone ahead for us and marked out a road map—a way to not only help us identify why and where change needs to happen, but how we can implement and multiply it for the benefit of others. An insightful, valuable, and timely rallying cry for us all in this moment that we find ourselves in—whether we are ready or not.”
